This morning, while I trekked to School, I stumbled on this cynosure. Not that it was strange, but merely unexpected. A well packaged ‘ebo’ for the gods positioned at ‘orita meta’.
Got me thinking how well Brazilians have caught on the details of a custom considered quite remote. While people jettison their customs or culture for whatever reasons, others are embracing same for their own reasons.
The question that came to mind was, “What Orisa is being appeased? What evil is being warded off?”
If I could wait as long as possible, I would just to behold the Orisa that would come to eat.
